1971 Kawasaki H1

1971 Kawasaki H1

Beautiful restoration on this 500 for a customer in Illinois. One of the few occasions where we used a decal kit, as it's practically impossible to re-create the pixelated component in the graphics with paint. All clear coated over, color sanded and buffed!

1972 Kawasaki H2 750 Custom

1972 Kawasaki H2 750 Custom

This is the second H2 we've painted for this customer. All paint, no decals or stickers on this custom paint job! We layered all the colors in blue/silver/charcoal, then smothered it all with purple candy before spraying the clear.

1985 Yamaha RZ350

1985 Yamaha RZ350

This job was sent to us by a customer in Florida. The tank was rusty and full of pinholes, and the paint on the tank had completely failed. The bike had been previously painted elsewhere. We had to clean and seal the tank, match up all the colors to the side-covers that the customer provided for a color match (and they needed a little refreshing), and re-spray the tank from bare steel.

Honda CB750

Honda CB750

CB750 done in flake sunrise orange, this is our own custom mix that mimics the original Honda paint. The difference is, this is a urethane base/candy/clear system, and all of the graphics are painted on. This yields a MUCH nicer paint job than the one Honda produced! For a customer in VA

1979 Suzuki GS1000 Wes Cooley Replica

This tank was sent to us from a customer in Beckley, WV and was in rough shape inside and out. Finding a nice one is impossible.

1970 Kawasaki H1

1970 Kawasaki H1

1986 Honda VF1000R

1986 Honda VF1000R

These tanks just don't exist any longer they are so rare! This one was sent to us by a customer in NC. It had pinholes and rust, and the paint was in poor shape. We matched up the OEM colors, stripped it inside and out, lined it with Caswell, pressure tested it, and then did the paint & bodywork. The HONDA word/wing decal was provided to us by AFE Graphics, and was outstanding quality. We applied it as part of the paint job, then sprayed multiple coats of urethane clear over everything.

1974 Yamaha RD350

1974 Yamaha RD350

In pitiful shape when it arrived here, we were able to save this set of bodywork. The tank had pinholes and the fork ears were bent. A custom mix of a brandywine base coat and a purple candy top coat yields the correct color for this little 2-stroke smoker!

1972 Kawasaki H1

1972 Kawasaki H1

This complete set of old H1 parts came to us in dire need of help. The bike was removed from the corner of a father-in-law's garage, and had been neglected and forgotten about for years! Here they are all refinished from bare steel, and looking like a million bucks!

This customer's original tank had rusted through. He purchased a used tank, but it was the wrong color. We cleaned it internally, sealed it with Caswell, did all the prep and bodywork, then mixed up the colors to match. I had to blend the pearl white on the tank into the pearl white on the side-covers to complete the blend illusion, but it's those little tricks that make the difference! Once the clear dried, it was shipped back to Ohio.

This striking restoration was performed on what were old and worn out parts. Everything you see here is a recreation of the original paint job, except it was done in all paint, no decals or stickers, and has multiple coats of urethane clear protecting everything! This bike can be seen rolling around the streets of Jacksonville, FL

From Jim W. in FL: "Bryan took my 1982 RD350LC with no hesitation. Did a fantastic job with the paint and decals. It now looks better than it did when it came new from Japan. Bryan kept in touch and sent pictures and updates. Highly recommended, and I will certainly use BD's Cycles again!"

This is an extremely rare and unique motorcycle. The tank was re-chromed, then sent to us for paint. A special technique was utilized to get the paint to stick to new chrome. I'm told there are only 20 of these bikes on the official registry, and the customer trusted BD's Cycles to do the paint work!

This relatively late model Triumph tank was plain black, and the owner wanted to spruce it up with something a little more special.

Straight from the customer's mouth: "I hope you and your business are doing well. I don't know if you recall doing a paint job for me 7 or so years back (time flies!) I've finally gotten the H2 finished and running. I thought you might enjoy seeing the finished product. My goal was to make a functional bike - not a "better than new" restoration that you are afraid to ride, so some of the original patina is there. Definitely loving the color and the job you did. Thanks again!"
